Chase Lee's curator insight, February 22, 2014 1:26 AM

So the Phoenicians and their Carthaginian successors were discovered to have been doing child sacrifices. They found this out through studying a burial site. This story filled my heart with sorrow more than anything. Very sad.

Andreina Ruiz's curator insight, February 26, 2014 5:39 PM

Archaeologists found new evidence from Phoenician burial sites. It is suggested that Phoenicians and their Carthaginian successors performed rituals of child sacrifice. It is unbelievable how an archaeologist named Van Dommelen referred to the sacrifices as a “contract” with the gods to be offered in times of distress in exchange for good fortune. But the exact nature of the rituals remains a mystery. This is so sad how children were treated like this in a very young age.
